For all intensive purposes, 3 x 780's > 2 x 780's = 2x Titans. Three 780's will be the best performance no doubt but you don't get as much going from 2 to 3 as much as going from 1 to 2. I actually went three 780's for the sake of balancing out my build. I didn't like the big gap it would have left between the two cards. When you water cool them the gap looks even bigger.

hmm here is my opinion ( i use Solidwork , 3dsMax , AutoCAD on my sig rig )

you dont need 5k to build a CAD / gaming PC , sure you could go Overkill , and by overkill i mean , buy a 1200w PSU , get a i7 xtreme , 32gb ram 3 SLI titans . uber watercooling setup , and a massive caselab case

... i already pass that "overkill or nothing" phase , along with the "pimp my case" phase , where u want the inside to illuminate like Christmas .

btw , a ATI works better than a nvidia card for "these" type of stuff

with a great GPU , a haswell CPU and 16 gb ram , its more than enough , and as you said it , its not gonna be a full time CAD PC , lol with that 5k budget you could build 2 PCs , one for gaming and another for CAD biggrin.gif

It will be anywhere from 5% to 10% faster than SB-E. The main difference is that it will draw less power. Since IVB-E will be using fluxless solder, the perceived overclocking headroom will be higher than regular IVB. Considering how much power SB-E pulls when overclocked, this might be important to you? It might not. Though it all depends on when you're planning on building the system. If you're going to do it right, then go with SB-E. If you're going to do it 2-3 weeks from now, then just wait till the first week of September and grab IVB-E.

Then what is your input on CPU? Also what is your conclusion on PSU needed for a build like this?

Still at the end of the day the Cooler Master V is better bang for buck then the Seasonic branded units

And no despite its says the Cooler Master is 80 plus god rated they are in fact underrated they are really platinum

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171079&Tpk=Cooler%20Master%20V850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438010

I can confirm this. I own the Cooler Master V series 1000W. It uses Seasonic's latest KM3 platform, and referring to the jonnyguru in-depth review, it states that in many tests this PSU actually get's upto Platinum efficiency, along with many other really impressive results including ripple ect.. and is one of thee best PSU's he's ever reviewed. It also uses a 135mm high quality FDB fan and has a fine-tuned fan profile, V-series PSUs are extremely quiet, even under full load. It also has 83A for the 12v.

You dont need more then 750 watts with two video cards
Maybe 850 watts if you want to do some crazy overclocking and a full water setup

I think most others already steered you in a good direction as for as hardware goes.

But I did see a under estimated liquid cooling bill,

I would plan spending ~$1500+ for everything, when it comes to liquid cooling it gets $$ pretty quick.

My Suggestion (for WC):
CPU Block: ~100 Raystorm
MB Block: ~150 Depends of course on the MB you buy, but imo go with EK
GPU Block 300 (for 2 blocks) I'm an EK fanboy for GPU Blocks, but I like Heatkiller as well
RAM Block (optional): 50 EK
Radiators: ~300 (assuming at least 2 360's) Alphacool, 80mm Thick Rad, I'm thinking of buying 2 of them.
Pump: 100 - 200 (1 or 2 Pumps?) MCP35X or MCP655 Also getting the Pump Tops (which cost extra)
Reservoirs: ~ 50 - 150 (1 or 2?)
Tubing Rigid / Soft ~10 - 30
Lots of Fittings! ~ 500 (imo depends on the case, how you route, and of course the tubing, but plan on gasping for breath at the sight of the bill!

Estimated Total: 1645

Of course you can get cheaper, but for what it sounds like you want to build, I think your going to be spending around 1500 or so for WC gear.

Some cheaper options are using the corsair H series (100 / 80) for cpu cooling. imo though if your spending 3k+ on hardware make it look / rock hard! thumb.gif

Thank you for the WC input! The way it looks is that I will use a decent size tube res and one pump with great flow. Have you used 80mm thick rads? They sound sweet with this overkill build but do they perform as such?
